Masoom aims to establish Quality Education in Night Schools by empowering, strengthening and transforming night schools to ensure the youth learn better and earn better. The focus is on enabling night school students to achieve their full potential through educational and policy support leading to better skills and job opportunities.

The Night School Transformation Program (NSTP) is specifically designed to meet the needs of Night Schools and its individual students. It is based on a 3-pronged intervention model consisting of interdependent focus areas for school transformation, namely Education Infrastructure and Inputs, Capacity Building for all Stakeholders and Advocacy.

Major Interventions:

Educational Infrastructure and Support: Masoom provides critical education infrastructure support and resources. This includes basic amenities such as nutrition (evening meals), notebook, textbooks, mobile science labs, computers and material for audio-visual learning, Braille learning tools and Braille Textbooks are provided to schools that have visually impaired students. Providing Entrepreneurship Development Programs, and Placement services. Masoom enrols visually impaired students from rural areas by contacting vocational training institutes that provide skill training to visually impaired students.

Career Cell & Capacity Building: The Career Cell was established to help the Night School students for making the right decision about their career by providing various long & short term courses along with guidance. Masoom works closely with various stakeholders in the schools such as the School Management Development Committee (SMDC), Trustees, Head Masters (HM), Teachers, Students, Alumni, Parents and Non-teaching Staff. Masoom organizes training sessions and workshop for these stakeholders. School leaders are appointed as a support to the schools as well as to Masoom.

Evening Learning Centers (ELC) & Tech-On-Wheels (TOW): The main focus of evening centers is to educate Out-of-School adolescents/adults through a formal/informal model of education thereby helping students to pass the 10th grade along with holistically learning and gain life skills.

In total, 3 buses are operational with access to computers, online resources and innovative educational programming that will open doors to a bright future and will act as a unique platform for students learning.

Meetings being conducted with officials from the Education Department to streamline the online program at school level.

Nutrition: Masoom has been providing dry ration kits to night schools in Mumbai and other parts of Maharashtra as the school students survived on daily wages or work in the unorganized sector, most facing unemployment.
